Chocolate Fondue with Fruit

Strawberry

Summer has ended, although it doesn’t always feel over yet. Are you wondering what to do with the last of the summer fruit? Have a chocolate fondue party! This mess-free chocolate fondue will add a touch of fun to your next gathering, and just watch the fruit disappear with this extra-sweet coating.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry

You’re not limited to summer fruits either — add some autumnal apple slices and let the party commence.

This three-ingredient chocolate fondue recipe eliminates all the hassle of melting chocolate (and of keeping it melted long enough for dipping.)

Stir in one-half of the water, leaving the other half in reserve to add as needed. Stir thoroughly to incorporate the water, because it can take a while to become blended. Add more water incrementally, until the chocolate fondue reaches a smooth and thick but dip-able consistency.

Chocolate Fondue

The prepared chocolate fondue stores well, so you can mix it ahead of time and store any that’s leftover for future snacking. When storing for longer periods such as overnight, it definitely keeps well in the refrigerator, but may start to thicken if left for several days. Especially if your chocolate fondue is chilled from the refrigerator, I recommend heating it up just before serving — warmed fondue adds to the melted-chocolate experience! Serve in a bowl with medium-long skewers for dipping.
